Some people can tear ANYTHING up. For what it's worth, I know they support 550 hp with 10 inch slicks.


Old and in the way.

Well I know for a fact the 28 spline axles break before the toploader does even with the small input shaft. I also know for a fact a built 393 or 408 Windsor will tear up a tko 500-600. FYI

i have the 5 lug conversion...aka bigger axles...like 31 spline... and a viper spec 6 speed will hold enough power my 460 will throw at it
